How to get Expert help in UK property law matters


The Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to UK property law questions such as:


  • The Official Receiver wants to put a charge on my property as a result of my supposed negligence. Are they allowed to do that?
  • Do you know if there is a way to change a property title deed to reflect a specific percentage each joint party owns?
  • Our builders have issued a court order and we need legal advice or a solicitor to represent ourselves.
  • Can I apply to the courts not only to extend a current stay, but add a counterclaim for monies incurred by myself?
  • My septic tank is on the golf course. It's been there since around 1900. Do I have historical rights if I can't find the paperwork?

The legal Expert will need some specific information from you. In order to make the best use of your time with the UK property law Expert, you should be prepared to answer questions such as:


  • What the dispute is about
  • Who is involved in the dispute
  • When the dispute occurred
  • The key events and their timeline
  • The current status of the dispute

Finally, have any legal documents pertaining to the dispute available.


With this information, you’ll be ready to start your session with the UK property law expert.
